Each part has its name, but it is name for this part of the library - for
example "Main lending library" (Wypożyczalnia Główna),
"Children's Section" (Wypożyczalnia dla dzieci).

For example - it will be displayed horribly on any map, as styles will be
unable to guess that these are sections of library, not separate entities.
